My current company applied for H1-b this April 1st as change of status. I got an offer from Google on April 2nd. I spoke with Google s immigration lawyers about my Visa situation. they said that it would be ideal for me to wait until October to finish the entire process (or wait for rejection from the lottery) . My question is will Google and the team be willing to wait so long ? If the current team does not wait, would it be possible to ask recruiter for another team match in October ? Will they rescind the offer ?
Did anyone face a similar situation ? What happened ? Also, is it absolutely not possible to move before October in case h1 gets picked ?
1. H1B not picked: You can switch immediately.
2. H1B picked: Google can file a new H1B petition (cap-exempt) and if it gets approved, the currect company can withdraw the petition
